Looking at my completed questionnaires, I have asked a range of both
male and female. Therefore, my magazine would be aimed at 50% male
and 50% female.
Out of the four people I asked, there was an age range of 16-25. The
target audience I would aim for is then the teenage/ young adult age of
15-25. The median age for the audience of my questionnaire was 19.
Looking at the different careers of parents, the social grade of my target
audience would be ABC1 and also a vast percent of C2.
Would you buy the same brand of magazines?
75% of the people I questioned said they would buy the same brand
questionnaire, although the other 25% said they might buy the same
brand. This places my target audience of the music magazine in the
psychographic profile of a ‘Belonger’.

facts on bands
33% of the people questioned said that ‘I would like to read articles
about new upcoming bands’. Another 33% said that they would
particularly read gig reviews. 17% stated that they would like to read
facts about different bands, and again another 17% said interviews were
the main articles they would read. This gives my magazine a more varied
idea of what pages the magazine would contain.
What social networks do you use?
45% of the individuals use the social network ‘Facebook’. 33% use

influenced by the social network media.

33% of the people are working part time. 17% are working full time, and
50% are still in education. This shows that individuals in education are
more likely to read my music magazine.
On average, how many hours do you use the internet a day?
Questioning this type of question can determine how much the media
influences someone in particular, the internet. 50% use the internet 2-3
hours a day. 25% use the internet 3-4 hours a day and another 25% use
the internet 4-5 hours a day. This gives my target audience an average
between 2-5 hours a day use of the internet.

Once a month
Twice a month

This is another type of question that can determine the media influence
on the individual; this is through the use of films and the cinema. 25%
